President Obama recently committed to raising the minimum wage for federal contractors to $10.10 an hour. However this will possibly exclude workers with disabilities.
While numbers are unclear there are an estimated 50,000 contractors with disabilities working for LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE!
Furthermore, Obama should use this moment to reform the the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that allows companies and non-profit organizations like Goodwill to pay disabled workers way below minimum wage, in some cases as low as 22¢.
